The Sojourner Truth Library’s Cataloging, Interlibrary Loan, Acquisitions, and Book Repair departments moved into newly renovated spaces earlier this summer. Affectionately known as the “Lower East Side,” near the main Concourse-level entrance to the building, this space features new furniture, carpeting, windows, and telephones, as well as a new meeting space, copy room, and storage room.
The renovation of the Lower East Side and two rooms on the ground floor complete the first phase of a planned four-phase renovation. This project is supported by $14.3 million in funds from the State University Construction Fund (SUCF) secured as an additional state appropriation by legislators Assemblymember Kevin Cahill ’77 and Sen. John Bonacic.
The library staff extends thanks to the Office of Facilities Management for helping bring about a smooth transition, and to all students, faculty, and staff who were affected in any way by the disruption.
